Block Statement Uses {...}; Format

This section describes how to enter block statements in H source code.

A block statement must be enclosed between "{" and "}".

This helps us to tie multiple statements together as a single statement to be used as a component to another statement. Within a block statement, variable visibility is changed. For example,

rate = 1.03; #commission rate

$function exchange(eur): {
   rate = 1.19; # exchange rate
   usd = rate*eur;
   $return usd;

eur = 10.00;
usd = exchange(eur);
usd = rate*usd;


Design options:

1. A block statement is enclosed in { and }.

2. A group statement is enclosed in BEGIN and END.

3. A group statement is identified with extra indentation.
